Monday Craving: Cherry Bars!

I only have a few more weeks to enjoy indulging in the pregnancy cravings, so I better take advantage of it, right?  Over the weekend I made our green Jello cake and have had my fair share of it (I'm saving one more piece for tonight!).  It is spring break for my kindergartener this week and I'm on my own with the three kiddos until Friday, so I think I deserve a treat!  

I was flipping through my recipe book the other day and came across a recipe for Cherry Bars.  I love them, my husband does not, so we'll see where the kids stand.  He doesn't like the texture of cherries, so it's no surprise these don't top his list!  I think I'll be making a quick trip to the store tomorrow to pick up a few things to make these.

Cherry Bars

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
dash of salt

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.  Beat well.  Add vanilla, flour, and salt.  Mix well.  Spread in a greased jelly roll pan.  Spoon one can cherry pie filling on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar or vanilla glaze.

Note:  I spread thin layer on bottom of pan.  Then pie filling and then drop remainder of dough in small portions on top and spread with knife as best I can.  Yum!!!
